Discovery Sport Review

Land Rover’s 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol unit was steered into the automotive arena in 2017 and is now readily available across a cluster of JLR models. The Discovery Sport I tested for this review employed the Si4 240PS engine – and came with HSE Luxury trim. The turbo petrol unit shoves the sport utility vehicle (SUV) from...

Lexus IS 300h F Sport

If you’re tired of seeing the same old euroboxes on your daily commute, Lexus might be the answer. It may not be quite up there with the Germans of BMW, Mercedes and Audi, but you get a relatively premium badge and a unique look. The look of the IS won’t suit everyone, but with its...

Volvo V60 Polestar

You may be forgiven for not knowing what Polestar is. It’s essentially a Swedish motorsport company from the 1990s, which Volvo bought out in 2015. In short, this is a car that aims to challenge powerful premium models, like those from BMW’s M-division and Mercedes’ AMG branch. So, we’ll expect big engines and lots of...

New Hyundai i30 Tourer

As we’ve discovered with Kia, the last few years have seen Korean cars become more popular. Indeed, the motoring industry has dished out high praise to the models that have fuelled this boost. One of these is the Hyundai i30, and in this Tourer body I guess I can call it a sensible small estate...

Range Rover Sport

Test Location: UK  Now, here’s a question that you might not know the answer to but will almost certainly have an opinion on. Is the Range Rover Sport one of the most influential cars of the modern era? A decade or so ago it seemed like all the celebrities were arriving to events in a...

Audi A4 Avant 3.0 TDI quattro 218PS

Test Location: UK  Fitted with a 3.0 litre V6 engine, the latest Audi A4 Avant becomes almost too powerful for its own good. Don’t get me wrong; the diesel lump is a real pearl, but there’s no way it returns the claimed 57.6mpg when riding on 19-inch wheels. I found the car thirsty, and mid-30s...

All-New Peugeot 5008 SUV 2017

The all-new Peugeot 5008 SUV is a good-looking car that doesn’t reek of middle-age blandness. The launch of the latest 5008 reveals a car that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but one that is 190mm lengthier than its sister, the five-seater 3008, and 110mm broader than the withdrawing version of the 5008. The fresh 5008...

Citroën C4 Cactus PureTech 110 Flair

The turbo-powered Citroen C4 Cactus may not be a sharp handler, but it’s bristling with character. That’s the opinion of our motoring journalist, Tim Barnes-Clay. Read his review to find out more about the car. If you like a bit of Gallic eccentricity, then the oddly named Cactus could be the car you’ve been dreaming...

2017 Infiniti Q60 S 3.0T Sport Tech

This Infiniti supersedes the G37 coupé, a sweet-revving V6 beast that’s relatively uncommon on the UK’s roads. The Q60 replacement model is equally as rare as hen’s teeth, but that may change if Infiniti, the posh arm of Nissan, gets its marketing right. Certainly, many heads swivelled in my direction during the week I tested...

Skoda Kodiaq

Skoda’s Kodiaq is a competitor to SUVs, such as the Kia Sportage. The car isn’t massive, but it’s big enough to fit up to seven people across three rows of seats. There’s a five-seater only version, too. I tested the car in Edition 2.0 TDI 190PS 4×4 DSG seven-seat guise, which means lots of equipment...
